AID ELIGIBILITY APPEALS

Recognizing that there may be extenuating circumstances that have prevented you from meeting the minimum satisfactory academic progress standards required for financial aid eligibility, federal regulations provide you the opportunity to appeal the loss of your eligibility. 


If an appeal is granted, you will be placed on financial aid probation and asked to follow an academic plan that will lead to meeting minimum SAP requirements in the future. If you do not meet the terms of probation, eligibility for financial aid will cease and all remaining aid will be cancelled. Subsequent appeals of the same nature are not permitted. Once you fail to meet the terms of your academic plan and lose eligibility, the only way to regain eligibility for financial aid is to meet the SAP minimum requirements.
